June 15: Fun with Eric

ECR welcomed guest caller Eric Henerlau to our June Fun Night. Along with square dance basics, Eric taught some easy line dances like the Electric Slide ("If you've been to a wedding, you've done this.") and the "Wild Wild West" barn dance (an ECR fave).

We'll be holding future Fun Nights on the third Friday of each month (June 15, July 20) featuring a variety of callers and dance styles to keep things fresh and interesting.

For more about Fun Nights and our Blast Class beginner program, see our Fun Nights and Beginner Classes page.

June 13: Welcome, New Grads!

ECR welcomed its 2018 "Green" Blast Class graduates with diplomas and speechifying, and cake. Caller Michael Levy led the group in silly square dance games. And did we mention cake?

June 1: Pass the Ocean, Please!

Kurt Gollhardt was the caller at our June potluck and dance. Plenty of good food and decorations, and all levels of dancing to Kurt's collection of ocean-themed music, with a grand finale of "Octopus's Garden".

Real dancing.
Real people.
Real fun.

EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would be glad to welcome you to our club. Send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
